Do you get repeat adopters?: Yes

How often do you rescue seniors?:

As often as possible, we encourage adoption from the shelters directly and if this is not an option we take senior dogs.

Are you finding it easier, the same or harder to adopt out senior animals now than when you first began in rescue?:

Harder

If faced with multiple seniors to rescue, how do you decide who to pull?

We pull dogs based on temperament not based on age, breed or health status. If it were down to the wire on which senior dogs
to pull in we would by all means take the one with less of a chance at being adopted from the shelter.

If you’re senior specific, what made you choose rescuing seniors over younger animals?  If not senior specific, why did you decide to include seniors in your rescue program?

Dogs of all ages wind up in shelters, but it is harder to see a senior dog with a story to tell sitting in a cold and damp shelter
where his/her odds in making it out are very slim.

What problems or difficulties have you had adopting out seniors?

People are unsure of adopting senior dogs from us because they think the dog is just going to pass away soon, or that it is too
old to bond a connection with them (false of course).

What sort of prejudices do you find held against senior animals?

“How old is it? Is it going to die soon?”

What special expenses have you found needed with seniors that you don’t generally have with younger dogs? (This is generalized and isn’t meant to include medical expenses for more catastrophic illnesses.)

Senior dog food for those with intestinal issues, or teeth issues.

Have you found something that helps get seniors adopted?

Networking them and allowing people to see them for how they really are in their foster homes.

Is there anything else that you’d like to share about your rescue group?

We love saving dogs and finding them their forever homes no matter their age, size, or breed!

All of these dogs are adopted, and all came from death row at kill shelters and found perfect homes after a lot of medical treatment each as none were in great health when they came in but left in perfect shape and spirits! Age doesn’t matter to us it’s personality!
